DAVAO CITY, Philippines—Nacionalista Party standard bearer Manuel Villar appeared to have snatched the ‘Mr. Palengke’ title from Liberal Party vice presidential bet Mar Roxas, with the way he has been going around public markets lately.
Villar made sure that he got to visit public markets whenever he was in a province.
During his Mindanao sortie on Thursday and Friday, he met vendors and market-goers at the Agdao public market and the Bankerohan market here, the city’s largest and busiest.
Villar expects more bets joining forces with NP
MANILA, Philippines – Now even fruits have taken on political color.
Just like the mandarin orange or ponkan, Nacionalista Party standard-bearer Senator Manuel Villar Jr. expects some of his opponents from the other parties, particularly the Lakas-Kampi-CMD, to change their colors and join forces with him as election day draws near.
Interviewed over dzRH, Villar pointed out that the ponkan starts out being green, the color of Lakas-Kampi-CMD standard-bearer Gilberto “Gibo” Teodoro Jr.
